Carbon Black Feedstock is a mixture of C12
and higher components rich in naphthalene,
methyl-indene, anthracene, fluorine and
other poly-aromatic components. It
originates from the high temperature
cracking of petroleum fractions.
CBFS is used to produce Carbon Black, which
is used in tyres and road
paving, tyre reinforcements, black pigments
(e.g. for road markings), and conductors.
The stream also contains piperylene, which
is used to produce copolymerization
elastomers, petroleum resins, curing agents,
pesticides, and perfumes.
Carbon Black Feedstock may be used as a
Naphthalene - used for phthalic anhydride, insecticides, and
Biphenyl - used for food
preservatives, heat transfer fluids, and
Fluorine or anthracene - used
for light emitting diodes, dyes, and wood
